Not sure where to post this... I apologise in advance for the TMI!!!
I'm 3.5 weeks post partum and still bleeding. It's just like a regular period, no clots or anything so I'm not concerned. This is baby number 4 and I've never had bleeding last this long. The thing is, I seem to have an allergy or something to wearing pads and whenever I've had AF in the past I can only tolerate wearing pads for so long or I seem to be umm rubbed raw from the friction. I've tried different brands but they all seem to have the same effect. Given I have now had to wear them for over three weeks now, I'm very sore and uncomfortable from wearing them. I don't think I should wear a tampon since I've just given birth due to risk of infection. So, silly question, is there anyway at all I can stop myself from bleeding? If I go on the mini pill now will that stop it? I've always been told not to start on birth control until 6 weeks but is that only because that's when you have your check up? Sorry if that seems silly but this is new to me even though it is number 4, I've never had this before.
Thanks in advance
